- Turn the mixer to low and add in the flour until just combined.
- Refrigerate dough for at least 2 hours.
Assembly and Baking
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- Remove the M&M cookie dough from the refrigerator and portion out tablespoon-sized amounts of dough and roll into 16 equal balls.
- Remove the chocolate cookie dough from the refrigerator and using a medium-sized cookie scoop, portion out the dough. Divide each portion in half creating 2 small round discs of dough. Place a ball of the M&M dough inside 2 discs of chocolate dough, forming it around the M&M dough, sealing it in, creating balls.
- Roll each chocolate cookie dough ball completely in sprinkles.
- Place each ball of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, 3- inches apart.
- Bake for 9-10 minutes, until the cookies are set.
- Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store airtight for up to 3 days.
Note – you can assemble the cookies prior to chilling, and chill them in ball form. The dough will be a little harder to handle this way, but it is an option.
